Medieval and Early Modern Equids: Classifying by Breeds, Types and Functions
Medieval and Early Modern Equids:
Classifying by Breeds, Types and Functions
Edited by John Clark, Gail Brownrigg,
Kelly-Anne Gilbertson and Andrew Ó Donghaile
Equine breeds, as we think of them today, are an early modern invention. Instead, medieval people distinguished between horses based on their origin and the type of work for which they were used. In this volume, we propose exploring medieval horse types, their treatment, training, use, artistic and literary representation as well as equipment employed for different tasks. Possible topics include, but are not limited to, the following issues:
- Types of horses used in warfare (warhorses, coursers, packhorses, and others)
- Civilian horses (palfreys, amblers, etc.)
- Working horses (plough horses, cart horses, etc.)
- Horse types used for ceremonial purposes and special equestrian equipment
- Representation of horses in marginalia, including imaginary equids and hybrids
- Differential treatment of horse types in sources, including legal documents, hippiatric treatises and literature
The preferred length of article is 9-12,000 words, but shorter and longer submissions can be considered on a case-by-case basis. There is no limit on the maximum number of illustrations, as long as they are relevant to the argument made in the chapter. The expected final date for the delivery of first drafts is 15 June 2023.
To propose an article, please send a short biography of 2-3 sentences and an abstract of 250-300 words to the Rewriting Equestrian History series co-editor Anastasija Ropa (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 5 October 2022.

I am most pleased to recommend Trivent publishing to anyone who is at the “publish a book” stage of life. The team is professional, outstanding, supportive, they are intelligent editors who will direct, not coddle, an author on his/her journey to publication.
I have been working with the Philosophical Journal of Conflict and Violence since its debut in 2017. It has been a pleasant experience to see how the papers take shape in the process from submission to peer review to publication. The editor-in-chief together with the Trivent team do a tremendous job and are always seeking quality above all!
I’ve participated in two conferences organized by Trivent in the last few years and both were a nice experience – went smoothly and had decent talks in good spirit. When it came to managing manuscripts, I was surprised by the professionalism by which they helped my text get published. I definitely enjoyed working with them!
